I haven't raised the level of the center speaker. To be honest it's not that often that I have trouble hearing.
It seems to be mostly only during some racing broadcasts, and I wonder if it's more...

Thanks for the advice.

The current speakers are ok other than the subwoofer is probably broken, it rattles quite a bit, although I can't see anything loose inside it.
Aside from that, I sometimes...

Video Conversion Issue

I have an AV7702mkII and have pretty much the same issue.

I have tried all sorts of different settings, both in the receiver and on the PC...

I'm still looking to block off more of the top/bottom and sides though.

Anyone make 3D Bug-eye wraparound glasses or goggles?

I use a BenQ W1070 projector in a relatively small room, but I haven't painted my walls dark, so there are plenty reflections off of the walls.
This doesn't bother me during 2D viewing, but with 3D...

I have a 622 without OTA, and I've never seen that.
